Biquinho Red Hot Pepper

Rating:
82% of 100

90 days. Pronounced bee-KEE-nyo, the name of this landrace from Brazil means “little beak,” and it will add a kiss of flavor to any dish you cook with it. The bright red, 1-inch pods taper to a point like an inverted teardrop. The pepper has the distinctive smoky flavor like other members of this species, but also a rich fruitiness that is enhanced by sugar or sweet-and-sour marinades. It also makes the perfect garnish for barbecues and pickles. The 2.5-foot bushes should be spaced 18 inches apart. Also locally known as “chupetinho.”
